Enlist Experienced Legal Representation From the Start
From violent, aggravated offenses to seemingly baseless allegations, all criminal charges should be taken seriously. You should never feel compelled to answer police questions, sign a statement, or plead to a charge without speaking to an attorney first. Effective legal representation is imperative, and can help you ensure that you are not pressured into making any statements or admissions that may be harmful to your case. However, in the event that you are illegally coerced into providing any such statements to law enforcement officials, your lawyer can seek to invalidate those statements on the grounds that they were obtained in violation of your constitutional rights.
An experienced criminal defense attorney can also challenge any evidence against you that law enforcement may have improperly obtained in violation of your constitutional right to be free from illegal searches and seizures. Specifically, there are a variety of motions that your lawyer can bring in court to prevent the prosecution from relying upon evidence that, for example, was seized without a warrant, or that was seized on the basis of a warrant that did not adequately demonstrate probable cause. Prosecutors are not permitted to build a case against you based on illegally obtained evidence. A capable criminal defense attorney can advocate for your rights to make sure this does not happen.
Protect Your Rights and Freedom
A criminal conviction can have lifelong negative consequences. Every effort must be used to keep a criminal record as clean as possible. A criminal record is not easily erased. Certain violations cast a permanent shadow over your ability to get a job, rent an apartment, or go back to school.
